U Cincinnati Links Blackboard to Text Messaging

Link: U Cincinnati Links Blackboard to Text Messaging

According to Michael Lieberman, dean of instructional and research computing, clearTXT has been made available through Blackboard to all courses at the University of Cincinnati. Professors can log into the system and quickly send a text message to students when a grade is posted, a new assignment is made, or to remind students about an upcoming quiz.

After all the recent stories about using text messaging for emergency alerts at universities, it’s nice to see a story covering a more day-to-day use of SMS.
